I decided to go all-out for my first MOC post. This is my build of Tanma for my space-themed Toa team. Wielding both Light and Air elemental powers (this will be explained in the future in addition to the mask change, in a Toa Aetherus team post), Tanma battles with the Photon Cannon. (melee weapons coming soon)
This Titan-scale build features 15 points of articulation (17 if you include the thumbs), including the waist and neck. The arms are capable of rotating to full vertical and the head can look directly up. The entirety of the legs, the waist, and the shoulders are double-jointed for improved stability. I worked to keep this MOC in the G1 aesthetic as much as possible, particularly 08’s more militarized style; only using CCBS conservatively, primarily for improved articulation.

Yes, despite his topheavy nature, he can balance on one foot!
